March Goals Recap + April Goals and some NEWS

So it's the last day of March and I wanted to lay out my March goals. 
Goal 1: the LOC method - I only did it when I remembered it.....so, FAIL
Goal 2: apply castor oil everyday - I didn't even remember this goal until today. Smh. FAIL

Well, March is over, and I am ready for April and some new goals. Hopefully, I can remember these goals: 

Goal 1: Castor oil on ends every night
Goal 2: JBCO in all DCs in April

Simply enough, right lol. Only the month of April will tell. 

IN OTHER NEWS!!!!!!!!
I will be adding MONTHLY FAVS to my blog, so please be on the lookout for it. It will include anything from makeup to hair. 

Also. I will be adding something call Fresh Face Friday to my blog. It's where I wear no coverage on my face to see how my face is clearing up (in addition to giving myself a break with any makeup that I use in the week). 

I will also do a few hair tutorials, Hair of the Day, Face of the Day and Hair Accessory of the Day. 

So, please be on the lookout for all of those, I will be starting with the Monthy Favs TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where Are My Relaxed Sisters At?!

Hi, ladies!
At least once a week, I have been hit with the same news: the news of losing relaxed hair inspirations to transitioning. Great for them, bad for me. I love knowing that there are ladies who prefer to chemically loosen their curl pattern. It's what I prefer and I love having motivation; my motivation being that relaxed hair can grow extremely long and be healthy. Lately, more of my inspirational ladies have decided to go natural, which has left me feeling alone sometimes lol. Am I the only one who still loves relaxers. Relaxers do not fall into my hands no more than five times a years. Doing so has allowed me to gain a healthy, relaxed head. Not all of my hair is bone straight; I have began to prefer texture, but not enough to where I would consider going natural myself.

This post is not to talk trash. Natural hair is beautiful. I cannot keep my hands out of my NG. I have envisioned myself with full natural many times. I have made a personal choice not to go natural. I believe that it is a personal challenge: relaxed hair can grow healthy and long. In all honesty, I have considered going natural twice since my HHJ. I take care of my cousin's natural hair because she cannot afford products nor salon visits. I have done my research about natural hair just so that I can help with hers (she is a freshman in high school). I have had to do appropriate research in order to properly care for her natural hair. For example, I use all natural products with her.

I wish all naturals the best on their journeys, BUT can a girl get some more relaxed inspiration lol???!!!! I hope I am not on this relaxed HHJ by myself, lol.

-Signed,
One proud and relaxed head

February Goals Recap + March Goals

This post is SUPER late. Grad school should take the blame. On top of that, I caught a bug that left me pretty sick and weak. Thankfully, I am over grad school until the next class as of today. In addition, I have gotten healthy and I am ready to get back to blogging, and blogging more frequently. I have had a few things to happen over the last few months, so I am trying to keep you all update.

First, I am coming to you with a recap of my February goals. I was supposed to moisturize my hair with the LOC method. I ended up falling off some, but for the most part, I did a decent job.
In addition, I was supposed to rod my hair the entire the month of February. I started off rodding my hair, but I ended up protective styling for the remaining of the month of February. So, I didn't meet my goal of rodding, but at least I protected my hair. So, I am not too upset.

My March goals will be:

-Try the LOC method again
-Castor oil everyday

I have been secretly doing makeup and hair hauls and I can no longer keep them to myself. So, I will be adding hauls on here. I have been considering doing a YouTube channel, but that my be WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY into the future, lol, like maybe at the end of the year. Who knows? It could be sooner.

I guess I will do better about blogging...

Hold me to it,
